Beartooth Elementary is competing in the Amazing Shake, where students are challenged to always show poise, manners, etiquette, kindness, and confidence in all they do.

So it's no surprise that Jayden Harper, my Junior Genius this week, made it to the 5th round of the competition.

11-year old Jayden is in the 5th grade at Beartooth Elementary where he's a school ambassador, and helps make decisions about school events. Jayden enjoys playing soccer and basketball, and plans to be a point guard for the Boise State University basketball team.

He has been soaring and excelling this year, showing his classmates and teachers he is motivated to make a difference and change, in his future and others. -Patty Harper

Jayden is the son of Jack and Patty Harper. He has one younger sister, Lizzy, who is in the 1st grade at Beartooth Elementary. Jayden's best friend, Trever White, also stopped by to show his support.
